When you need a massage that works deeply on the tissues, organs and fascia, we recommend the signature treatment called The Blend at The Health Cove in New Brighton. This remedial deep-tissue massage is enhanced with cupping and acupuncture and feels amazing! Make sure you book in for an Infrared Sauna before or afterwards.
Endota Spa – Byron Bay
For something boutique, endota Spa located in Byron Bay offers an environment that will appeal to all ages and styles.
